Darwin Day, celebrated on Feb. 12, marks the 200th birthday anniversary of Charles Darwin and the 150th anniversary of his famed publication, On the Origin of Species. Yet, despite the overwhelming evidence supporting the modern evolutionary theory, controversy still abounds. On this program, Prof. Jerry Coyne from the University of Chicago discussed why evolution is true.

Subject: Looking for "truth"? Peek under the rug!
Prof. Coyne claims that the only arguments against evolution can be summed up in: #1 religion and #2 the feeling of an attack against the "sense of self".

Unfortunately, it seems the professor must have missed or forgotten some of the writings of his hero, Charles Darwin. Darwin wrote of the Cambrian explosion as a significant problem and that if left unsolved would be a serious and legitimate argument against his theories presented in Origins of Species. Although there is no mention of it here in "Evolutionary Truth", this problem is often referred to as "Darwin's Dilemma".

Where Darwin said there should be "vast piles" of fossils showing the evolution of a multitude of new species between the Precambrian and the Cambrian there remains today an overwhelming absence of evidence. After 150 years of desperate searching, evolutionists are no closer to solving their dilemma and may be even farther than ever as it appears the geologic time these changes should have taken place in is even shorter than Darwin believed.

More honest evolutionary scientists such as the renowned Simon Conway Morris have been more forthcoming about the problem. Mr. Morris wrote in 2006 on the absence of necessary fossils in the Precambrian and Cambrian as "...most significantly a comprehensive explanation for the Cambrian explosion eludes us". Now that is evolutionary truth that is not being widely shared with biology students! Why is that not being taught in high schools?
